Marcy Two Piece Olympic Weight Bench with Leg Developer and Squat Rack
Looking to increase overall body strength and lean muscle mass while increasing your metabolic rate to burn calories? The Marcy MD-879 is your solution. The unique two-piece bench design allows you to utilize the upright bar support for squats and lunges, while the bench doubles as a stand-alone utility bench for lower leg, abdominal and bicep exercises. This bench features fully adjustable back pad for incline, decline and flat chest press exercises. With contoured foam roller pads that support form, you can get a total leg workout. The adjustable barbell crutches allows you to easily change the height of bar to conform to your workout needs. The built-in post on the machine conveniently organizes and stores weight plates. Included is an adjustable preacher curl pad with detachable bicep curl bar that allows extended bicep workouts. This all-in-one set is an ideal choice for any level user looking to building, toning and maintaining muscle mass.
The Marcy Two-Piece Olympic Bench MD-879 is adjustable at several points for your convenience. Adjust the back pad to decline, flat, and incline angles to change up your workout. And, the barbell catch / squat rack and adjustable curl pad are height adjustable for your comfort.
Separate Bench and Bar Catch / Squat Rack
Unlike many Olympic benches, the MD-879 barbell catch / squat rack is not attached to the bench. Simply move the bench away from the barbell catch to use it as a squat rack.
Included Storage Space for Weight Plates
For added convenience, the MD-879 Olympic Bench barbell catch has two Olympic pegs to store your weight plates and avoid cluttering your workout space.
Preacher Curls with Preacher Curl Pad and Curl Handle
Use the preacher curl pad and curl handle for preacher curls. Preacher curls take better aim at your biceps than regular curls.
Leg Extensions with Leg Developer
The included leg developer provides the option to do leg curls and leg extensions. Leg extensions are great for working out your quadriceps
Incline Bench Exercises – Incline Presses
With multiple backpad positions, the MD-879 provides a wide array of angles to pinpoint specific muscles. Incline Bench Presses target your chest muscles as presses do, however, the incline bench press focuses more on your upper chest muscles.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The directions were ok, just a list of numbered parts with counts (count all your physical parts first, before assembling anything) and various pictures (schematics) showing the assembled piece and all the parts that make up that piece, then a schematic of the entire product with all the numbered parts. The instructions have you build each piece in order, which is good. But it is up to you to figure out the order in which each numbered part is used... not too difficult. I put the whole thing together using a 5/8 socket and an adjustable wrench (I think there was one bolt that required an 11/16 socket). Having a second wrench handy helped when I needed some leverage (one time, I think). Required allen wrenches are included with the parts.
Here are a couple of things that caused me some extra time, hope this helps someone. There are two pamphlets that come with this product. One shows each part, its number, and the quantity you should have of that part. The other includes a list of parts by part number, and each part quantity. I referenced the pamphlet 1 first and counted the parts.
Two errors I found in the instructions:
There are 2 posts that hold the barbell, left and right. Pamphlet 1 lists them as 2 separate items, numbers 1 and 53. It shows that you should have 2-#1s and 1-#53. But pamphlet 2 shows 1 of each. Being that I performed my count of parts off of pamphlet 1, I thought I was missing a part. But only 1-#1 and 1-#53 are needed.
Pamphlet 2 shows that there are parts 20-25 and 47 & 49. Pamphlet 1 does not show these parts. The full schematic shows these parts as being used. They are not used. You are not missing them.
I am real happy with the complete set: Bench is great, barbell/weights (purchased elsewhere) are great. I was concerned about getting the right barbell because some folks asked about using a 5 or 6 foot barbell. You really should have a 7 foot barbell. When purchasing a product that requires multiple components I have always wanted someone to post what they did to successfully put together the complete product. Here are links to where I got the barbell and weights (best prices I could find, solid product):
CAP Barbell 2" Olympic Black ECO Bar, 7'
Golds Gym 2" Grip Plate (various colors, weight): I got black color, 4 each of 25lb, 10lb, and 5lb:
CAP Barbell 2" Chrome Spring Clip Collar, Pair
I had some relatively minor issues getting all the weights when they were promised but, with a couple of phone calls, everything got here and it was only a week or so delay. The bench (from Amazon) arrived exactly on time. There are a few scuff marks on the black frame but nothing that is a problem.
I rely heavily on comments when I purchase on-line. I hope commenting my experience helps someone. I've only had the product for a couple of weeks and I am 100% happy with everything. If anything changes I will post an update.
1) The cost. At $180, you are going to be hard pressed to find something else just as good at this price range.
2) Dedicated squat rack. This is a nice feature to have and I use it all of the time not only for squats but for reverse push-ups and should presses.
3) Quality weight bench. The bench is very nice for its price. It goes (almost) flat to (almost) 90 degrees upright so you can do a wide array of exercises. It also can be used for quad extensions, hamstring curls, bicep curls, and I even use it for seated rows.
4) Strength. The squat rack will support up to 600lbs and the bench supports 300lbs. While I would never load it with that much weight or trust it to do so, I have loaded the it with up to around 175lbs just fine for both squats and bench press.
5) 6 Olympic Bar Support: My room cannot fit a standard Olympic bar, but luckily the CAP 6' Olympic bar fits this bench press. You can see my video review on that here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R2HX9KAKEUZC29
1) Stability Concerns: When loading the squat rack, I always make sure to place some weights on the weight holders to stabilize it otherwise it feels wobbly, especially at 135lbs+. I am concerned at times it will break if I load it with too much weight and don't have it stabilized with support weights.
2) Longevity of the Bench: While the bench has been great so far, the inner-core is (I believe) plywood) so at some point the bolts will break from the wood and the bench will fall apart. I just hope that doesn't happen when I am bench pressing 150lbs+.
3) Weight Storage Arms: These are designed for both Olympics and the smaller (I believe) 1" weights, so the actual support is ~ a 1" hollow metal tube with a plastic sleeve for Olympic weights. I store around 40-50lbs on each side and am afraid to load anymore for fear the metal will snap under too much load.
Verdict: Buy this if you want an affordable and quality Olympic weight bench and squat rack! There are a lot of minor complaints from various owners of this weight bench and squat rack, such as the bench not going 100% flat, the squat rack being a bit wobbly but you should expect such for $180. So for this price tag, this is a steal. If you want something more robust that will handle a lot more weight and be a lot more secure for power lifting, steer clear of this. But for the rest of us who want a nice home gym at an affordable price, this is a great product.

There are NO WRITTEN instructions whatsoever at all. Everything is condensed in six steps. The pictures themselves offer zero heads up regarding particular attention that needs to be paid. The instructions read more like a schematic of all of the parts instead of an explanation.
Ikea instructions are a million times better than this crap.
If you pay 400$ for an item, the manufacturer should at least spend the hour it would take to transcribe written instructions.
$300 and free shipping!!?? Awesome! Good quality, decent design, nice finish
easy ID bolt packaging
Rack width inside 35 1/4", outside 40 3/4"
8 height settings at 2 3/4" increments
Min 39" max 58" some movement but quite stable. Approx footprint 26 d x 50 w (including plate holders which are great)
Bench approx 70 x 26 overall.
Bench seat 15 x 14 backrest 12 x 30
Incline settings 5, 20, 35, 50 and 70 degrees. 20" seat height from floor.
assembly drawings small and fuzzy but still straight forward, just lay out and follow the parts list for each page.
Arm curl attachment could be straighter or shorter centre bar for better range of motion. Sitting further back and narrowing your grip will help a lot(if required). No decline was a surprise (I missed) & no adjustable seat angle. Other wise I would give 5 stars for price and quality.
The Olympic adapters are slip on with lockable set screws and work very well.
I just switched to oylimpic weights but my 1" bar and set would work just as well. I would think heavy lifting at home requires a cage and I would agree this is for beginner or intermediate range of users.
But overall a great buy for home use I would recommend.
